    Abduction Information
    Date: 07/16/06
    Time: 8:30 P.M.
    Location : Salt Lake City, Utah
    Child Name: Destiny Norton


    Cancellation Details
    11:30 a.m. The Amber Alert has been canceled because the person they were looking for was found, said Salt Lake City police detective Robin Snyder, and the criteria for issuing an alert was no longer there. However, more than 50 city police officers along with agents from the FBI continue looking for Destiny.

    Details of Abduction:
    ------Developing------Sevkija Ferhatovic is now in the custody of The Salt Lake City Police Department. He is currently being interviewed by investigators as to the disappearance of Destiny Norton. Further details as they become available.An Amber Alert has been issued for a missing five-year-old girl named Destiny Norton. Police are looking for a 51-year-old man in connection with the case.

    The man of interest is Sevkija Ferhatovic. He also goes by Sezgija Ferhatovic, and was born in Bosnia-Herzegozina. Ferhatovic was stopped by officers in the area of 700 S. 500 E. last night shortly after Destiny Norton left her home.

    He was released, but information developed since that time leads investigators to believe that Ferhatovic needs to be interviewed again.

    Police say Destiny was getting ready for bed around 8:30 last night. She wanted to stay up later, but was told to get ready for bed, instead. Five minutes later the five-year old was nowhere to be found.

    Police began questioning friends and family, but no one has seen the little girl. Lt. C.T. Smith, Salt Lake City Police Dept.: "They've been going out in extended areas with flyers we've made up, contacting anybody they see in the street, trying to find out more information."

    Police searched all night, going door to door. But they haven't had any luck.

    Police also began questioning motorists driving in the area. That's when they originally talked with Ferhatovic. Now they are looking for him again. They went to his home and found his car, but have not been able to locate him.

    Day Three of Search for Destiny Norton Gets Underway
    July 19th, 2006 @ 8:30am

    Gene Kennedy Reporting Another day, another search for missing five-year-old Destiny Norton. Jeannie Hill, Friend: "We will not quit until this little girl comes home. We will be out there searching 24 hours a day until this girl comes home."

    More than 75 volunteers have showed up to help the family search for Destiny this morning. They plan to expand the search to the Millcreek area and Emigration Canyon. Volunteers also will go door-to-door, asking people to look around their homes.

    The new volunteer meeting place is an LDS Church building at 440 East Harvard, which is 1110 South. The Salvation Army is providing water and some food. Volunteers include friends, and many people who do not know Destiny or her family, but want to help out.

    A group of 30 LDS missionaries also joined the search effort this morning. Meantime, police are focusing their search on two specific areas-- the block where the Norton family lives and the block directly west of their home. Earlier, detectives searched the inside of the Norton home and removed several bags and boxes, but they say the family is not under suspicion.

    Both Rachel and Rick Norton passed polygraph tests. Rachel says she plans to give a DNA sample to investigators today. Police have received dozens of tips, but admit they have no concrete evidence Destiny was kidnapped or that a crime was even committed. Only two weeks ago, Destiny was smiling for the camera at her parent's wedding reception. Her family moved near Liberty Pary in February and recently joined the LDS Church.


    Rick and Rachel are expecting their third child soon. But right now their focus is on their oldest daughter. Rick Norton/Father: "I just want to find my kid. I want to thank everybody for helping. Hopefully something turns up." Police have talked to more than a hundred registered sex offenders and a "person of interest." But at this point, there are no suspects. The family's endless hope is that something or someone will turn up. There is a $15,000 reward being offered in this case. If you have information, call 799-3000.

    The community's concern is also evident. Hundreds turned out Monday to help in the search. The family is hoping for the same type of turnout today.

    Update in about 10 minutes on Nancy Grace. Maybe she'll explain why the amber alert was canceled.

    The Amber alert was cancelled because since there was no proof an abduction had taken place (as in no one saw it happen) it didn't meet the criteria to continue as an Amber Alert, but there was an "endangered Child alert issued after the cancellation.

    Thanks, Moab. I didn't hear why it was canceled on NG, and there wasn't much of anything new. The two suspects who were on the amber alert were no longer wanted, that was about it.

    We put up a sign at the search center today that said ..."Today is a Good Day for a Miracle"

    We had nearly 800 searchers...but no resolution.

    I didn't hear anything last night. It is indeed a good day for a miracle. And, what JR said:

    Rocky joins plea for aid to find girl
    Lori Hacking's father is among hundreds of volunteer searchers

    The Salt Lake Tribune

    Salt Lake City officials on Friday announced a bigger reward for missing 5-year-old Destiny Norton and urged the public to continue searching for her through the holiday weekend.

    The reward doubled to $30,000 after the FBI announced it had matched an earlier reward for information that would help investigators find the girl who disappeared Sunday from her home at 721 S. 500 East in Salt Lake City.

    At a news conference at an LDS wardhouse at 455 East Harvard Ave., the staging site for the search, Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, police Chief Chris Burbank and Norton's parents asked Utahns to continue volunteering for search efforts and to keep an eye out for the girl during their travel on this Pioneer Day weekend.

    "We want to make certain that everything is done, that all the stops are pulled out," said Anderson, whose office had been silent on the case until Friday.

    Volunteers in significantly greater numbers than on Thursday continued searching the central part of the city on Friday, as well as the canyons on the city's east side.

    Search for girl picks up in heat
    Still no clues

    At least 700 people sweated and searched through fields, backyards and alleys Saturday in some of the summer's hottest and unhealthiest air trying to find Destiny Norton, the 5-year-old Salt Lake City girl who disappeared one week ago today.

    Carrying a half-full bottle of water, attorney Scott Lundgreen trudged up and down 200 East near Kensington Avenue (1522 South) about 3 p.m. talking to residents, looking into fields and digging into trash bins.

    Lundgreen, from Melba, Idaho, drove to Salt Lake City on Saturday to drop off relatives. When he read an account about Destiny in the morning newspaper, he decided to stay and help search.

    "I've got a daughter," he said with a pause. "You just never know."

    Destiny disappeared last Sunday from the backyard of her Salt Lake City home, at 721 S. 500 East. Volunteers have scoured neighborhoods around her home all week and spread into the Avenues and Sugar House, as well as industrial areas west of town.

    Most searchers carried bottled water and Gatorade to stay hydrated as Saturday's high temperature reached 104, tying a 2003 record, as well as being the hottest day this summer. A red alert, or unhealthy-air-quality warning, was issued by the state Department of Environmental Quality, the ninth consecutive warning for the Wasatch Front since July 14.

    snip

    More than a dozen members of the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary in Utah took part in Saturday's search. Thelma Soares, mother of slain Salt Lake City resident Lori Hacking, also volunteered at the command center. Hacking was shot to death by her husband, Mark Hacking, in 2004. Her body was dumped in a trash bin before being discovered in the city landfill months later.

    The search for Destiny is expected to continue today throughout the city, Rachael Norton said. Volunteers also are expected to look for the youngster during Monday's Pioneer Day Parade in downtown Salt Lake City.

    Looking for Destiny

    l Destiny Anne Norton, 5, disappeared the evening of July 16 from the backyard of her home at 721 S. 500 East in Salt Lake City.

    l She is 3 feet 6 inches tall, with short blond hair with green streaks. She has silver caps on upper and lower teeth. Destiny, who also goes by "Annie," was last seen wearing an adult-size, long-sleeved, black-and-gray-striped shirt.

    l Anyone with information is asked to call 801-799-4636, or send tips to http://www.tipsforcash.com. A $30,000 reward is being offered for the girl's return.
